Influenza Resources from IDSA and CIDRAP
Stephanie Cox

Looking for information on influenza? IDSA has extensive material on its website:

  • Avian Influenza (Bird Flu): Implications for Human Disease
    This section contains information on avian influenza in humans, the 2003-2005 outbreak of H5N1 in Asia, treatment, vaccine development, World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) travel recommendations, surveillance, and infection control.
  • Pandemic Influenza
    This section contains information on the agent, the historical perspective, past pandemics, the current H5N1 threat, vaccine development, pandemic preparedness planning, and infection control.

The information on avian and pandemic influenza was developed and provided by the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) at the University of Minnesota, with input from IDSA’s Rapid Communications Task Force. If you have suggestions on how to improve the content or make it more relevant to ID clinicians, please contact Diana Olson at

Additional influenza information is available at, including:

  • A CME monograph for IDSA’s 2008 Seasonal and Pandemic Influenza meeting
  • The agenda and registration information for Seasonal and Pandemic Influenza 2009 (to be held Feb. 2-9 in Washington, D.C.).
  • Summaries of IDSA’s policy and advocacy efforts related to pandemic influenza
  • Links to other helpful influenza resources
